Help Us Shape The Internet's Future

Topic:  WHOIS

Background

Every year, millions of individuals, businesses, organizations and governments register domain names. Each one must provide identifying and contact information which may include: name, address, email, phone number, and administrative and technical contacts. This information is often referred to as “WHOIS data.”

WHOIS service is not a single, centrally-operated database. Instead, the data is managed by independent entities known as registrars and registries. Any entity that wants to become a registrar must earn ICANN accreditation.

WHOIS data is key for fixing system problems, maintaining Internet stability, and enhancing the accountability of registrants.
